New trainee buyer, Freddy
Freddy has joined the buying team
as trainee buyer after working in
Member Services for the past two years.
Freddy had worked for an independent
wine merchant in Yorkshire before
moving south to take up a job with us
initially as a Christmas temp. His keen
attitude, knowledge of wine and
experience of working in Member
Services stood him in good stead when
a position came up in buying.
